We stayed here on our last night in Costa Rica. We had a fun filled honeymoon and wanted the last night to be relaxing. We stayed in a Thermal Room and it was amazing. The personal natural spring hot tub was exactly what we needed to relax. The room was comfortable and clean.

Decent hotel for the price. The hot springs are awesome and a nice way of spending time if there’s nothing much on. The hot springs area is quite spacious, view is fantastic on a good day, and the service with cocktails is great. Hotel is about 7km out from the main La Fortuna town, so given that the menu at...

Rooms were ok. Nothing special. Beds were horribly hard. But our maid, Yolisa was awsome. The grounds were pretty. Bar staff was nonexistent. Had to wait forever and they were not busy. Had a swim up bar, but no staff there. The best dinner was the sushi for me and my friends midnight express, other wise blah food

Enjoyed the hot spring pool on premise. The food and service were excellent. The landscaping and view were beautiful. Numerous excursions offered. We took the Hanging Bridges tour. Spas offered but we didn't have time to take advantage of them.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The grounds are so well maintained. Extras like the bird feeder that you can watch from the restaurant were added surprises. Numerous waterfalls in the pools were so pretty and refreshing to sit under!! A very pleasant stay!

This was the 2nd stop on our tour of Costa Rica, and I have to say I think that the grounds were the most beautiful of all the hotels we visited. The plants/flowers were extraordinary!! I'm sure I didn't capture all, but certainly managed to take many shots of the very diverse/bright and unusual plants. Every morning when we went... More

Pros: The grounds are very nicely maintained, with lots of plants and greenery. The restaurant was good enough that we ate there twice. Our room had a great view of the volcano, and I think all rooms have a private hot spring/hot tub, which was nice. Cons: Dry cleaning costs were outrageous. It's a bit far from town, so it... More

The room was nice and I would say it was on the higher end of average. The bed was OK. The thermal pool was nice and dinner and breakfast average. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The garden walk is half I'm development/Restoration phase. Probably would book at the same!me price.

Close to heaven. We felt like family and royalty all at the same time. The food was the best! And we enjoyed the wild birds the staff fed for all the birders present. (And there were many.) Didn't have time to do it all. Which is a great excuse to go back!
